My daughter is really digging into my past – Actress Mercy Johnson Cries out
Mercy Johnson-Okojie, a Nigerian actress, spoke candidly about her daughter’s interest in her history.
Mercy discussed her upbringing and how becoming a mother has altered her perspective in an interview with Goldmyne TV. The 38-year-old actress acknowledged that she now regrets some of her earlier choices.
The actress further disclosed that Purity, her daughter, who is presumably the eldest, has her curiosity piqued by conducting online searches about her.
“When I do that, what would the younger girls do? When you grow past a certain level, you try to go ahead and do better. For me, you don’t need people to tell you what’s right or wrong
“Age is telling on me. I’ve grown past that level, I’m answerable to too many people: my husband and my kids. I hate to embarrass them in any way. My daughter is growing.
“She gets hold of my phone sometimes, begins to google, and goes like, ‘Mum, my friends said…’ And they’re very inquisitive.
“I don’t think it’s (playing nude scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their mind that they want to ask and they can’t.
“My sense of maturity is better, my judgments are better. Some of the errors I made in the past are things that I wouldn’t do now. Some choices I made back then I wouldn’t make now.”
